Earth Science (which is more of an introduction to the many components of Earth Science) is full of hands on experiments and activities such as making your own weather station. Covering weather, landforms, rock cycles, the structure of the earth, storms, climates, glaciers, and so much more (swipe left to see a sneak peek). Students are learning about how to use a dictionary and thesaurus and will be creating their own science journal to log their adventures!
A bit more technical than some of our other units, I have heard some people say this was their all time favorite and others say they struggled to engage. I recommend looking at the samples and choosing this unit based on your children's interest. If they love all things about storms, weather, experiments, etc. then they are going to love everything about this unit!
What to buy? You will need to purchase a physical workbook for each child as well as a Teacher's Guide for yourself. The Teacher's Guides contain all the actual teaching, they are not just for answers, so they are critical to your lessons. Printed books are printed on 32lb. paper and are shipped to you coil bound.
How long are units designed to last? Each unit is designed to be 4-5 weeks. Our main units and most of our mini units include 20 lessons and can be done as a 4-day school week (lasting 5 weeks) or a 5-day school week (lasting 4 weeks) to offer flexibility. You're in control! Set a schedule that works best for your family and your pace will dictate how quickly you complete any given unit.
